Comfortable and well appointed home from home close to beaches

  • 5 of 5

Booked a week in August for our family in the UK and extended family in USA. Robert and Yolanda were attentive and responsive during booking and run up to the holiday. Their home is a true gem and a home from home, set in a beautiful neighbourhood, a short 5 minute drive to central Milford for shopping and restaurants, or if you fancy it about a half hour walk! Lots to do nearby and we were lucky to have booked during the Milford oyster festival. Every detail catered for at the address including towels, beach towels, sun cream, toiletries etc. The kitchen is fully equipped allowing easy catering for 10 persons with TWO dishwashers! Robert was extremely helpful on arrival and accessible when questions arose via text or in person. I would highly recommend staying here! Damian A.

A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely amazing in every way. Robert and Yolanda made us feel so welcome in their home. The 10 minute walk to the beach felt like it was around the corner. The beach was very nice, not at all crowded. The neighborhood is very nice, a friendly feel. I cannot say enough about the house. It looks quaint from the outside but ultra modern on the inside. I cannot comment on local restaurants as our family enjoyed cooking in the chef's kitchen. We all felt so at home. The fenced yard was perfect for our dog. She was able to be outside with us and not on a leash. We enjoyed playing some yard games and sitting outside reading a book. The living room is big enough for the entire family to sit comfortably. The master bedroom is like an oasis. The bathrooms are amazing. Usually by the end of the week everyone is homesick. Not this time. I did not want to leave. I highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed. My thanks to Yolanda and Robert for opening up their home to vacationers. I would come back here in a heartbeat.

Clean home, great yard near the beach

  • 4 of 5

Robert and Yolanda could not have been better hosts. They welcomed our family (including dogs) into their home. They left all he big things and more of the little things one could have expected. They walked us through their house to make sure we would be comfortable. They went above and beyond at every turn.

We would recommend their home to family, friends and anyone who asked. Impeccably clean, music in every room, wonderful deck, a quite backyard and 10 minute walk to the beach. In addition to the places they recommended, the Dive Bar and Off the Hook served up great seaside food. The Wine & Spirits Co had a greater collection of impossible to find beers. And with New Haven so close we enjoyed an even wider array of museums, the best pizza in New England and music.

Great house with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. It is spacious and well furnished. It has a comfortable livingroom, modern bathrooms, large bedrooms and a gourmet chef's kitchen. It has a spacious enclosed yard and deck. We enjoyed our time here reading, taking short strolls to the beach, and trying our hands at some gourmet recipes. There are markets and very good restaurants nearby. We felt like we were home here. This house was well-designed for comfortable, stress-free living. We'll definitely be coming back.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

A run to the nearby beach is how my husband and I started our day. Loved it! We also enjoyed meals in the beautiful kitchen and relaxing on the deck afterwards. The spacious and comfortable master bedroom is the perfect sanctuary for quiet time. Great experience and memories.
